So, Mark and I went to the Southern Highlands on Sunday for an open garden festival. Mock me if you will, but I’m telling you, some of the gardens were breathtaking.
Charlotte our beloved fur ball baby had to have a run around so we stopped off at this beautiful cemetery. We were walking around and to our disgrace Charlotte was jumping on graves. Mark and I got talking about death.
What do you want written on your headstone darling?
I want something that is along the lines of “Smiled as she looked death in the face knowing that she died with No Regrets!”
Wayne Dyer calls it “Don’t die with Your Music Still in You”.
Seriously, can you imagine living with no regrets? Living so fearlessly that you constantly stepped outside your comfort zone and lived on the edge between your best and your greatest. Wow, imagine going after your dreams as if your life depended on it….because it does!
Imagine achieving all your dreams, all your goals, imagine for a moment becoming who you were truly meant to become! The real you. Have you met her yet? The real you? I’m sure that you have seen glimpses of her, but has she ever fully come out?
Les Brown asks the crowd in several of his speeches “Where is the wealthiest place on earth?”….The answer is in the cemetery, because that is where people’s dreams die with them. That is the place where people take their gifts, never letting others experience what it is they came here to do.
Only you can know for sure what your talents, dreams and goals are. Only you will truly know where you are holding back. But all I can say is the world is missing out on you! So, how do we get you there? Easy…..
Believe In Yourself!
You must, must, must start believing in yourself! It is an essential ingredient because this world is hard, it will challenge you, people will tell you that you cannot have your dreams, they will laugh at your dreams and you will doubt yourself if you let them in.
So, start right now. Start believing in that bright spark within you that you feel every now and then. You might get a true sense of your bright spark when you are doing something that you love, or if you are around beautiful people, or going to a powerful motivational talk!
You must commit to bringing her out each and everyday. Refuel yourself with positive affirmations, motivational talks on YouTube and surrounding yourself with winners!
Some people take 2 sugars in their coffee each morning, my coffee is YouTube, listening to Les Brown! He is my caffeine in the morning to arm me with fire and passion for going after my dreams.
Hang Out With The Dreamers!
Do not hang out with dead people! Dead people are the one’s who are so negative you feel sick or deflated after speaking with them because they are so negative! How can you possibly rely on dead people to nourish your dreams, to fuel the fire within you, to keep you chasing after your dreams?
Hang out with the dreamers, the daydreamers, the go getters, the passionate peeps, the like-minded souls that throw you up into the clouds and yell out to you “FLY, YOU CAN DO IT!” Surround yourself with those people!
I may not know you! But I believe in you without a shadow of a doubt. Make it your personal business to make your dreams and goals your daily reality. You have something so special within you! Something so beautiful! Something so different from anybody else! Let your music live with you now, let your spirit, your talents, your skills out…because the world is waiting for you!
Leave a comment below declaring that you will commit to following your dreams! Tell me in the comments below what your goal is this month. I would love to hear all your beautiful dreams.
Take some time to go through the growth work sheet and let her come out and live! Be inspired to rise up with the dreamers. My Plan For Living With No Regrets!
